250 guests.

lighted white cathedral candelabras. The pews were marked with

white tulle bows and blue bells.

organ prelude of nuptial music and the traditional wedding marches,

and accompanied the soloist, Don Rademacher, as he sang

"The Wedding Prayer," preceding the ceremony and the

"The Lord's Prayer."


Coming down the white-carpeted aisle on the arm of her father,

was the lovely bride,  in a gown of hand clipped white Chantilly

lace over taffeta.  Natural scallops of lace framed the Sabrina

neckline, with iridescent sequins and seed pearls. The long

fitted lace sleeves, tapered to deep bridal points at the wrists,

and closed with tiny lace covered buttons. The molded bodice of

lace was created by insets of organzine taffeta and formed a

bustle bow at the back of the voluminous skirt with a scalloped

hemline, that fell softy into a court train.


Her double tier veil of imported French illusion fell to fingertip

length from a half hat of lace ornamented with floweret's of

seed pearls and iridescent sequins. She wore pearl earrings, a

Miss Evelyn Gobber, Lincoln, served her sister as maid of honor.

She wore a ballerina length dress of Bermuda Sea pean de soi. The

pearl earrings, a gift of the bride. She carried a colonial bouquet
